Unshakable - September 10, 2017 to December 3, 2017

Message Date: Sunday, September 17, 2017 - 10:30am
Summary:
1 Peter 1:3-9
We all trust our seatbelt to save our lives, but why?  We trust it simply because someone tested those seat belts and certified they work as advertised. Did you know your faith has also been tested? In our passage this week, Peter explains you can trust your faith because it's been "tested and approved."

Summary:
Throughout the history of the church persecution of believers has existed.  Now it seems, though, the storm of persecution we used to only read about has come to our nation's shores.  For the first time since  the founding of the U.S. we are seeing laws passed with the explicit purpose of limiting Christians' exercising their faith.  But we have hope in knowing the church will get through this storm, and we will be stronger on the other side.  Early believers faced persecution, too, and God protected and grew the church then, and He's doing it now.

Summary:
There's no doubt life can be full of both wonderful and not-so-wonderful things.  As believers, however, we have the joy of knowing that no matter what's happening in the here and now, we have something much more waiting; we have the "Joy of Things to Come."  Join us as we continue our series: Happy Dance, examining what Paul said about the things God has in store for our future.

Summary:
One of the things God consistently rewards is obedience.  When a person puts God's will first, God blesses that.  That's what we see as we look to our passage this morning.  David had become a little too complacent with God and that led to a disobedient heart.  But what David discoverers is, not only is God more special than David was acting, God rewards those who obediently follow His will.

Summary:
One of the things that comes from the joy we have in Christ is the ability to live a humble life.  Putting others' needs before ours, serving others when they don't seem to appreciate our efforts and sacrificing of ourselves to invest into other people's lives are all things done through humility.  Join us as we continue in our series, Happy Dance, looking at how the joy of Christ affects our lives practically and what we can look for as a result of being filled with Jesus.

Summary:
The 1993 classic movie “Groundhog Day” is beloved by millions; it is a movie depicting a man, actor Bill Murray, who is trapped reliving February 2nd again and again without being able to live a February 3rd. This movie is enjoyed partly because there appear to be no consequences for the decisions Murray makes. In a practical sense, how would you live your life differently if there were no consequences for tomorrow?

Summary:
Everyone has been through a time in life where things seemed out of control.  Something happened that defies understanding and we're left asking the question, 'what does it all mean?'  As we continue our study of Philippians we see Paul was going through a similar time of uncertainty, he's in jail and his future is in the hands of Caesar.  However, we also see Paul is filled with the joy of knowing that even when life seems out of control, God is in control.

Summary:
While happiness depends on how things are going in a person's life, the joy of the Lord is an interesting thing because it is unaffected by those circumstances.  In this message we see how Paul was able to write this incredible letter of joy even as he sat in a Roman jail.  And as Paul writes we see the joy of the Lord through the fellowship he has with the Philippian church.

Summary:
Matthew 10:34-39
The life of a believer should be filled with joy because there is nothing more joyful than the knowledge of having a personal, saving relationship with God.  It is a joy the world cannot match or even come close to!  On the other hand, though, there is another side, the side that says there will be difficulty, there will be hardship, not everyone will respond.  And when we come across those times we say, “Things Just Got Real.”
God is a dividing God:
